There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

The Ball Excercise

Pilates... YEA! Can you say butt and thigh torture? Because that is what it is. And I am totally looking forward to going again tonight. I know that any kind of burn in that area is what I desperately need. It helps that the teacher is a total nut! She sings, laughs, tells stories, makes jokes, and makes it worth going to. Now if I could get myself to do a hundred or more sit-ups a day that sure would help.

Motivation is my biggest struggle. I need someone to encourage me, give me pep talks. Ohh I know, that someone should be ME! :giggles:

Anyone else do pilates? Love it or hate it?

edit: I love that class! I am dying to make it all way through. I will take a before and after picture. come back in one year to see what it looks like! :wink:


  1. I like Pilates a lot but I don't do it very often because it's not enough stretching for me. I like yoga better because I get my cardio, stretching, and strength training all in one routine.

  2. I have a friend who does Pilates and loves it!!
    If Icould get off my butt and actually get motivated to exercise, this would be one I'd like totry! (But I'm not! lol)

  3. i found that pilates tones the areas I need toning, and I am thinking that I will take a yoga class in between.

    our instructor is awesome!

  4. ok, i need toning in all areas. do i do yoga or pilates? remember, i'm a beginner. and i get discouraged easily.
